Sukarya works to save lives of mother and children, empower women, empower villages, and educate slum children in Delhi, Rajasthan and Haryana.
Work and Achievements
The team Sukarya has been able to reach around 700,000 people living in more than 90 villages, directly and indirectly over the period of 18 years.
Conceiving and having a baby, is one of the most beautiful, natural and joyful experiences of life. However, this reality can be extremely difficult and life threatening for many women living in poor, remote and deprived regions of India.
According to the United Nations (UN) and The Lancet Global Health Report released in November 2015, maternal deaths in India stood at 45,000 or 15% of such deaths across the world. Maternal Mortality Ration MMR was 174 per 100.00 live births.
A large number of infant mortality and maternal deaths due to various complications during pregnancy and child birth can be preventable with adequate care at the early stage. Sukarya has been providing access to quality maternal and child health services to women and children living in the most backward and underserved areas of Haryana, Rajasthan and Delhi.
- Implemented intervention on areas where access to quality health care was non-existent,
- Strengthened linkages with existing government system.
- Empowered rural women through Self Help Groups with various entrepreneurship programs and inspired the communities to take ownership of the programs and change the attitudes.
- Our unique and innovative approach brought in global collaborators like Enactus, freedom from Hunger and MAMA, a global alliance of Johnson and Johnson, UN Foundation.
Our goal is to prevent maternal and child death, prevent malnutrition and give them a safe life.
